What To Wear
“You’re never fully dressed without a smile” ~ Annie
When trying to plan a memory you know will be kept for years, you want it to be just right. A couple words of comfort: 80’s hair. Yes, styles come and go.
So the first advice I want to share is be your honest self. Colors and patterns are fine, but be careful with large graphic and brand logos, they can be distracting. On the other end of the spectrum is matching. If it is the same, refrain. We definitely want to see the real you. Mix it up!
So what to do, what to do?
Layers and texture will add depth and detail. For girls, layers and textures can easily be found in ruffles or a light scarf. Not only do layers make a photo so much more interesting to look at, it also gives us a few more options, making it easy to change up a look throughout your session.
Coordinate...but don’t match. Start out with a basic color palette and move forward. You can pick out a few color pops to coordinate between subjects who are wearing more neutral palette. It can also be fun to have one person’s outfit be the “center stage” piece (this is usually girls and women), and then pull coordinating colors, using texture and layers for the other subjects.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns. Accessorize! Hats, scarves, jewelry, vests, sweaters, etc. These can quickly make an image more complete and pleasing to the eye.
And most important remember, God dresses the lilies and they look fabulous. How much more then, does he care for you.
“And why worry about your clothes? Look at the field lilies! They don’t worry about theirs. Yet King Solomon in all his glory was not clothed as beautifully as they. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won’t he more surely care for you?” ~Matthew 6:28
